There is also a ‘Hall of Fame’ of Swedish popular music legends, which besides ABBA consist of Roxette, The Knife, Max Martin, The Cardigans, Håkan Hellström, Monica Zetterlund, Swedish House Mafia, and Robyn among others. It’s merely a musical meeting place where everyone is welcome.
For example, you can visit the legendary Polarstudion, where ABBA recorded all the songs. In the studio, you can find a piano that is linked to a piano in Benny Andersson’s studio. When Andersson plays in his studio, the piano in the museum starts to autoplay. You can also see a collection of original items from the group’s victory in the Eurovision Song Contest in Brighton 1974 and the rest of their career.
Through the museum’s audio guide (available in many languages), you can also listen to Agnetha, Anni-Frid, Björn and Benny’s own stories and memories from their remarkable career. And do not miss the big interactive part of the exhibition where everything you do can be downloaded to your computer via the barcode on the ticket.
You can buy tickets on the website. And please note that the museum has only card payment, i.e. no cash, and that the tickets are so-called slot times to minimize the waiting in lines. This means that you book a time for your visit at the same time as you’re buying your tickets. The ticket price also includes entrance to the Swedish Music Hall of Fame and the History of Swedish Popular Music.
